i gotta see the whole draft, i don't understand how you got Utley, Webb and Peavy on the same team...but you did so props to you...i think the OF is a little weak compared to the rest of the squad, and 3B with longoria being the backup to Reynolds...i think its gonna take Longoria a little longer to get started in the majors then most people figure...and then the OF...Gomez really is only useful for his SB at this point and time, and i think Quentin is a fluke as do many people...other then that solid team, im hopin you got Cueto later in the draft, and if you did outstanding pick cuz IMO hes the better of the 2 with him and Bailey...nice team for sure...

help me out...

My strategy was to use the early rounds on my infield and get solid pitching. Every year there are OF that come out of nowhere and play well (McLouth, Hamilton) so I was willing to wait on it. I didn't get the players I wanted at 3B so I just put that off till the end. I actually think Quentin is legit. Not many people thought McLouth was legit but he's proving them wrong. Quentin will cool off but he's not a fluke in my opinion.

Utley amazingly dropped to 9th (Berkman went 1st overall, can you believe that?). I took Webb and Peavy in the 2nd and 3rd. I find out the next day Peavy is hurt :-t

no offense, but for a midseason team its not that good.

reynolds and jackson are ice cold right now, they could be big flukes. cueto and wilson will hurt you. thanks to peavy's injury, your pitching is solid, but not spectacular. i think your offense is good., but risky to keep it up. though i do think quentin is the real deal. Most likely will be able to compete well, but not as good as you say.

Actually I do take offense. Reynolds and Jackson were late round pickups. As a matter of fact, because I drafted towards the end I used my waiver on Russell Martin (idiot dropped him) and dropped Reynolds. This wouldn't have happened had I drafted early. Longoria will be decent at 3B.

Jay Bruce baby, he is the shiznit. My OF just got nastier.

Peavy's injury isn't anything to worry about so my pitching will be stacked. Cueto and Wilson may hurt me but again late round values. That is why I drafted players like Webb, Peavy, Marmol to balance out the high ERA's from Cueto and Wilson.

Do your homework next time before you declare my team not that good.
